Default 2WW

I know this question has probably been asked a lot, but I'm just wondering: for those of you in the 2WW, how strict are you about drinking alcohol? In the beginning I was very strict and drank nothing at all, but I've loosened up a little bit now and allow myself a not-too-full glass of wine that I start on while cooking and finish at dinner. And not every day either. Is that terrible? What do you guys do?

And you know what else? AF is due exactly on Thanksgiving day for me - can you believe it? DH and I will be visiting my entire family at my mom's, and we're staying a few days afterwards and I keep wondering that if by some wonderful stroke of luck I find I'm pg will I actually be able to keep it to myself?

Good luck to all,
jjello

During the 2ww I abstain from alcohol. Your doc will probably tell you that it's fine, but I'd rather not risk it.
Good luck!

I used to stay away...but most of my friends got pregnant when they were wasted...so if a glass of wine relaxes you, all the better. I'd stay away from liquor for sure. But a glass of wine isn't horrible...IMO

The wine is not going to hurt you. Matter of fact, I now make a point of having a glass of wine after IVF transfer. It relaxes your body. And if that is what the embie needs to implant, so be it
